Having lived in Novato for more than 20 years and been politically involved in the development of Hamilton Field, it was a pleasure to return and survey the results. Marriott Courtyard is one part of the many positives: great location to visit Napa Valley or Sears Point, a few steps from the Marin Airport bus service, superb staff, surprisingly quiet,... More

I had canceled my saved card on the Marriott web-site so it kicked me back when I thought I was done. I figured out I needed to update my credit card number and did so then hit submit, Evidently, the reservation page reverted to the current date rather than what I had asked for. (most travel sites save whatever the... More

Hotel is clean and staff was very helpful and polite. Our bed was not comfortable to point neither of us really felt rested. Rooms are clean and there is a small fridge which came in handy. Good place to stay that is close to highway but a good 45-60 minutes to Napa or Sonoma

My first interaction was over the phone. I was peppering them with questions regarding Gift Card use. Linda, who told me she's worked there for 7 years, assured me not to worry. I paid my bill at checkout using the cards without issue. She was all smiles and friendly with each interaction I had with her. Linda should be cloned.... More

This hotel is well located backing on to a Safeway and some cafes and restaurants. The hotel lobby is very modern looking and nice to sit in with plenty of seating for their cafe. The problems I had related to the room itself. The door had large gaps around it so a lot of light from the hallway flooded the... More

Bed was plush and comfy. Restaurants and stores walking distance. Typical courtyard, which is why I stay in these. Would stay here again. My only negative was the traffic was so bad it was a little too far out of Petaluma and we would stay closer next time. But then the highway construction will be finished by next year.
